Five years of marriage

Today is our five year wedding anniversary.  It’s hard to believe that it’s been five years since it feels like it’s gone by so fast but we’ve also done so much and have both grown so much it also is hard to believe that it’s <em>only</em> been five years.

I’m working on a post with a few lists of my five favorite things about our marriage that I had hoped to put up today but with the move across the Bay, living out of boxes and not having internet connection at home it hasn’t been easy so it’ll have to wait a bit (mainly because I want to read it to him before posting it for the world to see 🙂 ).

Here are some photos from that hot summer day in San Pedro five years ago…

The wedding party–Kevin’s sister, my best friend Erin, my sister the maid-of-honor, me, Kev, Kevin’s brother the best man, Kevin’s best friend, my brother, our nephew the ring bearer, our niece the flower girl

Our ceremony was short and sweet (just the way we like ’em!).  We were on a balcony overlooking our guests who were enjoying the beautiful garden below and we were married by one of my dear family friends

We did it!


The newlyweds!

Me and my brother, mom and sister

With my new set of parents

With Kevin’s grandma Margie (one of my all-time favorite photos)

Me and my beautiful niece Katelyn

Our first dance

We danced to Chicago’s “Colour my world” and every time I hear it I am taken back to our wedding day.  The lyrics are beautiful:

“As time goes on
I realize
Just what you mean
To me
And now
Now that you’re near
Promise your love
That I’ve waited to share
And dreams
Of our moments together
Colour my world
With hope
Of loving you”

Here’s a link to the song if you’ve never heard it (it’s short and beautiful!)

I also surprised Kevin with the Hawaiian wedding dance

Nothin’ sweeter than wedding cake!
